D0975: Fine Red Knot, Chief Cuffee, Long island, NY, Circa Early 1900s

Fine red knot in summer plumage by Chief Eugene Cuffee (1866 -1941), Shinnecock Reservation, Southhampton, Long Island, New York. An early classic Cuffee carving showing strong John Dilley influence with extended wingtips and carved wing outlines, it is in very detailed original feather paint with its original bill. There is some light paint flaking on the breast of the decoy. A large percentage of these decoys have been found without the carved wing outlines and with their bottoms planed so they would sit upright on wooden bases, perhaps as book ends. This decoy is original with no such alteration. The eyes are shallow drilled holes, painted black on the inside. The decoy measures 9-1/2” in length from tip of bill to tip of tail.
